Product description

From Booklist

Mahar, a journalist, explores the intrigue and implications of the famous 1982-99 bull market. We are introduced to money managers, stock analysts, and market timers who played critical roles, as well as an unprecedented number of average men and woman (called "main street investors") who poured their retirement savings into mutual funds--money most of them could not afford to lose. Small investors were not advised of the inherent risks in their investments, says Mahar, and the media hype was so great and the news was so good that thousands upon thousands gave Wall Street their confidence. The book concludes with the author's thoughts on topics such as the "buy and hold" strategy; managing risk in a bear market; strategic market timing; and commodities, gold, and the dollar. The 1982-99 run of the bulls on Wall Street was part of a longer cycle that governs the stock market, and Mahar teaches many valuable lessons in this excellent history and analysis. Mary Whaley

“Bull!! also offers individual investors prescriptive data on how to position oneself for the next bull-market cycle.” (International Herald Tribune)

The other question on which Mahar is very interesting is the behavior of Greenspan . . the best account I’ve seen. (UPI)

“Mahar takes complicated topics and explains them clearly for the average reader. Her exceptional book is most highly recommended.” (Library Journal)

“Mahar imparts a forward-looking and worrisome lesson that makes Bull! intriguing reading.” (Boston Globe)

“Highly readable and insightful... makes a devastating case against the contention that the market is almost perfectly efficient.” (New York Times)

“Striking...has a lot of the writing pizzazz lacking in ‘Origins of the Crash’” (New York Times Book Review)
